Insert from the Hartford Courant - April 1, 2012
New home construction is struggling to get its footings in Connecticut, but there's a building boom in the making for one kind of housing that you might not expect: Apartments.

The driving force: Apartment vacancy is expected to fall to less than 3 percent this year in the Hartford area, making it one of the strongest markets in the country.

It's 2013 and We Are Looking Forward to a Year of Profitable Property Management. Meet other property owners and managers ... share ideas ... find new acquisitions.

Here is the lineup

Love It or List It
Thinking about selling your building? Think it's a dog? Wondering if the grass is greener somewhere else? CT REIA members and Realtors will share how they evaluated their property to decide if it was time to sell OR to keep it.

Rents Are on the Rise! Are You Getting Your Fair Share?
Rents in 2013 are climbing higher ... are you getting more for your units. Coach JoAnne Brissette will share with you strategies for increasing your rents by 20% and decreasing the length of your vacancies.

Prevention is the BEST Medicine ... When it Comes to Inspections
Discover how to prepare for building, fire, and health inspections. Reduce the cost of repairs required. Learn how to build a positive rapport with these officials.

Deal or No Deal ... Bring Your Deals and We Will Help You Structure Them
Listen in as some of our most successful members describe their profitable cash flowing acquisitions.

The 5 Types of Properties Easily Flipped or Bought for Huge Profits at Every Tax Sale in the Country

This is a follow up to our monthly meeting on August 12th. Be sure to attend whether or not you can attend the monthly meeting. This is a one day intensive training on:

* Tax Sales (and all the terminology that goes along with it)
* Entity Structuring ... most people have it all wrong
* The 5 most profitable deals you can find at tax sales
* How to choose the right investment for you based on your capital position and your stage of life
* How to use breakthrough software to sort through thousands of leads and uncover the exact prospects you want to focus in on
* How to profit from tax sales

This training is usually reserved for Bob Diamond's high-end coaching students. However, because of CT REIA's relationship with Ed and Bob Diamond, they are willing to share this.

* Strategy for finding the 5 most profitable deals at tax sales
* How to make money by "wholesaling" them AND by buying/holding them
* Sorting through thousands of leads to find the EXACT ones you want to go after

This is NOT a repeat of MONDAY night - you want to come to both!

During this training, you will understand the terminology you need to know, including: tax sales, tax auctions, tax liens, tax deeds, redemption periods and more.

* You will discover where to purchase and where not to
* How to choose the best strategy for the amount of money you have available to you (your capital position) versus the risk you can tolerate (based on your stage and age in life). You can use tax sale properties to create a balanced portfolio that helps you get to your financial freedom position.
* How to make money from property you don't want to keep
* How to make positive cash flow PASSIVELY on properties you hold onto

The Diamonds are making millions of dollars a year using this system ... and they want you to have the same success. They are also looking to partner with you on the properties you don't want to keep.

This is absolutely not a system or property type you know about, because up until now you could not find these and with this software you can. 24,800 properties go to tax sale a day. This is the software that helps you find the proverbial needle in the haystack!

The 5 types of properties that other investors totally miss at the tax sale

We asked Bob to come to our August Monthly Meeting because Bob has identified a totally unique and groundbreaking opportunity for investors to acquire tax sale properties that are cash cows using Bob's unique system!

Prepare to be amazed by our special guest, Attorney Bob Diamond. At this month's meeting, you will learn about secret hidden properties that are at the tax sale. Literally, these are properties that no other investor knows about. Bob is going to show you the actual system and software that they use to find these hidden properties and how you can do this as well.

This is perfect for those investors with cash to invest and those who have none
